How self-care can help you get rid of stress and 4 effective steps to follow

Nowadays stress is a frequent phenomenon in the daily routine of a large part of the population. Matters such as obligations, work, family or even the stagnation of some situations, can cause unwanted feelings of stress which often don’t know how to deal with.

And even though we know that some things like meditation or an herbal tea can be proven to help the situation, today we are going to share with you some ways that can make us feel better immediately and one of them is skincare.

#1 Make sure you sleep well

In order for our brain to work properly, it needs to be sufficiently “charged”. You will notice that the days you slept well, your mood is better and the “stress” factor is at lease at a lower level.

#2 Begin your day with exercising

Even if you don’t want to join the gym, a few morning exercises will “wake up” your brain and help you start your day in a much more positive mood. This happens due to the release of endorphins and serotonin, which are directly linked to good mood. Of course, if you prefer, you can include exercise at the end of your day, so that you can relieve the stress and anxiety of the whole day.

#3 Take a hot or cold shower

If you wake up feeling stressed in the morning – whether you know the reason or not – a shower has been proven to help clear your mind (of course you can do this anytime of the day). According to research, a hot shower helps our mind to reduce stress, due to the heat which prompts our brain to secrete oxytocin – the “hormone of happiness”, which reduces stress. A cold shower, on the other hand, boosts blood circulation, which helps the brain to relieve stress.

*Of course, we have mentioned the ideal shower temperature in a previous article, both for our skin and hair, with the general conclusion that very hot showers or very cold ones should be avoided.

Apart from the water’s temperature, the products you choose to take care of yourself in the shower will also play an important role. Choose a cleansing product for your skin, which apart from cleansing can also have a positive impact to your mood.

The Exfoliating Body Gel Wash is a daily exfoliating body gel with a fresh herbal scent that will create an atmosphere as relaxing as a spa. Contains cinnamon, coriander and rosemary essential oil – a herb known to have stress-relieving capacities. Along with cleansing and hydrating your skin, it will boost blood circulation, which has a positive impact on both your skin – for cell rejuvenation and your mind – for stress relief.

After you’re done with your invigorating shower, complete your treatment by moisturizing your skin. Taking care of ourselves can make us feel instantly better.

The Firming Body Oil will deeply hydrate and tone your skin and also help you relax, having a positive impact on your mind and body due to its exotic scent and anti-anxiety capacities.

In fact, for the holiday season, you will find both products in an offer package, to easily create a complete body care routine. From €75 you will find it at €59, in their full-size version and from €29 to €25 in their travel size version, to try them on or give the perfect Secret Santa gift to your friends!

#4 Keep a journal

It is a favorite habit of many people who often struggle with stress and anxiety. Writing down whatever you feel, whenever you feel it on a piece of paper, will help you better understand what’s causing the stress but also help you better understand yourself and how to deal with it.

There are so many things that you can do! Simple everyday things, some of them at almost no cost that will make your day!

Remember! Life doesn’t wait, it doesn’t pause! Don’t waste the moments and opportunities that are given to you. Life is too short to stress and see everything in vain. Our motto?

Positive thinking, positive action, positive results!
